Aye. But what goes around comes around; especially in racing. Its a matter of balance.

Considering the amount of doubles trebles etc it was expensive for layers with the shortest returned @ 5/6

Not a fav backer myself tbh, but I did well laying today 11/12 on the lays (6pts up). only idiots back all favs and same goes for the layers laying just favs. the fav seems to get all the attention in the market, luckly today was a good day for fav backers.

Regardless of whether you are a fav backer or not it still cost alot for layers as with follow  on bets rolling on to the jolly it cost alot for some .

And the shortest being 5/6 there are a few layers hurting for sure.

oh defiantly. layers in the punting world are hated as much as the bookies so I'm sure it went down well with punters, but as a layer myself I wouldn't keep laying the favs personally, better to lay what you actually think is going to lose rather than blindly lay the fav every race.

You are new and you will learn that horse racing is a difficult and precarious game.
Best policy is to back.

Trust me as I have fkd up many times laying including today but recovered my losses with some by backing.
Had a good day overall but for sure when you add it up laying is only an option when you hate one.

I'll admit the sr you need to be making is so much higher compared to backing, backing you could be making profits with a 20% sr but laying you really need to be hitting upwards 85%-90%, but if you know the bad one's it can be fairly combatable to hit 85%, only takes one bad lay out of 8 though and your back to square one. so I'll agree laying is harder in terms of needing a high sr.
Report HorseBurger1989 May 24, 2014 1:43 AM BST
I back but do lay as well. and backing on a good day out does any excellent days laying.
